A sprinkler system is a excellent way to keep your lawn looking lush and green. The following are the fundamentals of the way a sprinkler looks like to help you understand what you’re looking for.
There are five basic components of an irrigation system. The controller (or timer), the pipe, the valves, sprinkler heads and the backflow preventer.
Water source provides water to the mainline and your sprinkler. The water is transported by PVC pipes that connect to the stopper for backflow, which prevents contaminated water from entering the drinking water. The water then flows into valves that are connected to other pipes.
The entire system is controlled by the controller or timer. This tells the valve when to be shut or open. They are in charge of managing a particular zone or sprinkler head station. A timer can trigger the valves into opening when the set time is reached. This water is then pumped to the sprinkler head.
If the timer is running out then the controller sends a signal to tell watering equipment not to continue. The pressure of the water decreases, and the sprinkler heads turn off.
There are various kinds of sprinkler heads placed in accordance with the area of your lawn or garden they’re watering. Have a look at the video below to get more information about the way a sprinkler system operates and what you can do with it.
